Angiosperm pollen grains are described from the Upper Albian to Middle Cenomanian strata of several localities in southern England and northern France. Twenty-two species are described, of which the following thirteen are new: Psilatricolpites rectilatibus, Retitricolpites amplifissus, R. crassitransennus, R. exiguiexemplum, R. meumendum, R. promiscuus, R. sarthensis, R. subtilimaculatus, Psilatricolporites complanatius, Retitricolporites ecommoyensis, R. insolitimorus, Triporopollenites curtisi, and T. worbarrowensis, A sequence of angiosperm pollen assemblages is suggested and an attempt is made to relate this to the ammonite zonation.
